By the time you read this, Rafael Soriano may be a Brave, or he may be an Oriole, or a Yankee, or a Red Sox . . .
Soriano accepted arbitration from the Atlanta Braves yesterday. Then, in order to make room on the 40-man roster they designated OF Ryan Church for assignment. Then, Soriano accepted the possibility of a trade with a specified list of teams . . .
I’m tried of the story already. Anyway, the winter meetings are going on right now, so he’ll probably be traded before the end of the week.
I guess this spring may have been the last time I photograph him in a Braves uniform.
